Hello! Happy Monday!
I hope all of you Mother's had a Wonderful Mothers Day yesterday.
I sure did. I Love my boy's to pieces. I think everyday being their Mommy is a celebration.
So remember my Driftwood Sailboat I shared in my last post HERE
Well I have it on my Mantel and I thought I'd share that with ya today.
But first I just wanted to mention that obviously my Sailboat is a Knock off. I have been inspired by these beautiful handcrafted ones made by Whiteflower Farmhouse for such a long time. And since my recent trip to the coast I thought I'd give it a shot.
But if you would like a sailboat too, definitely go check them out, if you haven't already.
So I just kept my mantel really simple. I added a bunch of bottles, a few pictures, some driftwood and a bucket full of snowballs.
Here's a mirror image from across the room.
I filled my crate with the rest of the driftwood pieces I picked up. Like I said, I plan to make another driftwood mirror.
I also picked up the bucket on our trip as a Thank you gift to my mother in law for watching the boys. I thought it was really cool because it has a little pocket with holes on the inside. I'd never seen a bucket like this before. When I gave it to my MIL she said, "oh cute a Mop Bucket" maybe not the best idea. She also went home on a plane so there was not way of taking it with her. So I'll have to bring it with me the next time we come down. Anyway, I think it looks adorable filled with some branches off my snowball bush.
A view from the kitchen.
Remember the story of the Marin? and No I'm still not allowed to paint it white.
I also made a few other changes to my living room. I'll show you those next time.
Have a Wonderful Week!
